Hilversum, Netherlands – December 6, 2022 — Xebia Academy, a global IT training and upskilling company, today announced it has partnered with technology workforce development company Pluralsight.
Together, the companies are offering clients from all over the world a unique blended-learning experience by combining Xebia Academy’s live – virtual and physical – instructor-led classroom training with Pluralsight’s online and on-demand technology learning solutions. Xebia Academy customers can now add custom content to their learning journey from Pluralsight Skills, enabling them to build skills in specialized technology roles, including Security, Cloud, Data Analytics, and Machine Learning.
With this partnership, Xebia Academy expects to deliver solutions that help organizations build technical expertise while managing the necessary development needs of their diverse teams.

“By teaming up with Pluralsight, we can now offer a full blended learning experience to our customers,” said Jurriaan Bernson, Director at Xebia Academy. “Pluralsight is a leader in online and on-demand learning for technology skills, and we’re proud that we now serve as a one-stop learning and development shop for our customers. And with all tech skills largely overlapping each other, customers can complement our instructor-led classes with online learning.”
